Yahoo has more on Teddy's selflessness here.
First of all, anyone who buys or even supports this is banned from playing the "inferiority complex," "little brother" or "all you do is care about UK" card(s) ever again. Second, isn't the primary goal in sports to be the current champion? Isn't the offseason that U of L fans are currently enjoying the pinnacle of fandom?
I will give credit to the large number of Kentucky fans (a healthy majority) I've seen admitting that this is embarrassing, but you still know these shirts are going to start popping up all over the city in a couple of weeks. And that's fine because national championship.
Congrats to the members of the U of L football team on wrapping up a solid academic year.
The Cardinals finished the spring with a solid 2.68 and a 2.72 cumulative team grade point average for the fall and spring semester combined. The 2.68 mark was the second-highest mark during head coach Charlie Strong's tenure at UofL.
The strong semester saw one student-athlete earn Dean Scholar honors for a perfect 4.0 average, while 17 players were named to the Dean's List (3.25 or higher) and 37 earned over a 3.0 GPA.
During the spring semester, the Cardinals had 30 student-athletes named All-Academic BIG EAST, and offensive lineman Alex Kupper and quarterback Will Stein were named to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society. Cornerback Adrian Bushell was named a Scholar Baller award winner.
Six football players earned their degrees during May graduation, including 2013 seniors Damian Copeland, Champ Lee and George Durant.
Memphis remains the leader in the race to host next March's AAC Tournament.

In case you missed it over the weekend, the Louisville softball team suffered yet another regional tournament disappointment, falling 7-4 to UAB and then 19-2 against UCLA on Saturday. The 19 runs allowed were the most in the history of the program.
Still, it was yet another terrific season for Sandy Pearsall's bunch, which is bound to break through into the super regionals at some point in the near future.

Quick story from over the weekend when I showed up to work this charity golf scramble. So I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking.
So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
